    @BG Can you send me a version of the file where the metadata is large (before you clear it)? It looks like the version of the file you sent before was not in the problem state. I apologize for the delay, I missed the notification for your previous comment.

    Hi Joseph

    Just got the same message again.

    Here's a link to the project file before the Metadata has been cleared.  https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/8j6wpt10ahu7x5asjb65v/2311-WD01.02.vwxp?rlkey=m0oesrrd9289t4ccacyc9qxso&dl=0

    We've just cleared it unfortunately, so will have to wait until it pops up again.

  3. We have just started working on a new project. The file is only about 50mb.


    We received a message today saying that the metadata is too large.  We have only just started, are we going to get this on a regular basis as it's a bit of a pain?


    Is there anyway to prevent this happening?



  4. Hi

    After installing VW2024 Update 1, the window schedule I had drawn using a Graphic Legend seems to have an issue.

    The design layer that the windows are drawn at is not at '0' and has an elevation of 293900.

    However the graphic legend is now drawing the floor level at '0' and is also dimensioning the windows from '0' and I can't see how to make it show the floor level at the correct elevation?

    Attached is a PDF of what the legend used to look like plus a VW file that has this issue.

    Is there anyone that could spare a minute to check if there is a setting I am missing?

    Note, the windows are 'Windoor' objects.

    If you're using a styled object and you set the elevations by style, that should keep the heights from changing.  But that may be more restrictive than you want.  If you're dragging an endpoint of a Structural Member, you can also tab over to the desired field, enter a value and have it constrained to that value while dragging.  


    Would having a way to lock these parameters directly on the Object Info palette be ideal?



    When dragging a structural member that is pitched, the pitch changes. Being able to lock the pitch (or other values too) would be much more user friendly.  I will try the tab suggestion, as this sounds good.  We gave up using the structural member and went back to the framing member as it is easier to manipulate.

    Having a 'direction' indicator would also be helpful.

    There was a third party plugin called breaker that is exactly what the breaker tool needs to be. Surely an intern can be put on to knocking out some this basic? Even Revit is streets ahead in break line functionality. 

    I agree, this seems like a very simple tool to upgrade.

  7. Thanks, that is helpful. It is frustrating that a tool is close to being useful, just needs a bit of further development! fingers crossed before retirement, although with the state of the worlds finances, that may not be for some time yet!

  8. Yes, I agree with everything you have said.  I can't believe that you can't change the length of a sloping member without it changing the pitch? We had some issues with an IFC coordination with a structural draughting company where the framing members were 'shifting' in the file transfer & we had better results with using the structural member. These were however, horizontal members so were easier to reshape.  It is a pain not being able to change the length of multiple structural members in one go.

    @FBernardo the alignment of the images within a cell is based off the width of the image plus the dimensions. So if you have no dimensions the Window/Door images should all be centered in their cells, but when the dimensions are included it changes the centering (see below). We intentionally set it up this way based on input from users, but would appreciate your feedback. Does it seem like an option is needed to let you center on just the image while ignoring the dimensions?






    For the door legends in your file, I'm also not having any luck getting things to align cleanly, so I'll put in a report for that. Thanks!


    Hi Tim

    To add my view. Yes, the elevation and plan images should align - ignoring the dimensions.

    @BG this does look like it only happens with WinDoor objects and not with regular Window or Door objects. This is partially-fixed in the upcoming service pack but I'm still seeing the problem with some objects, so I'll log a bug report for it. Thanks for the info!


    @FBernardo is the issue with your file that you can't get the images/text to align along the red lines?

    Thanks Tim, much appreciated.


  11. Have installed VW2023 and was keen to try the new graphic legend. Immediately noticed that if the windows have a value specified in the 'Z Off:' field, then the automatic dimensions do not align with the windows by this amount.

    Is there a setting to select that allows for this?

  12. When using the Title Block Border, is there a way to add a revision to multiple sheets in one step?  Likewise when adding or removing Drawing Stamps, is there a way to add or remove drawing stamps on multiple sheets in one step?
